A Message from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant



              The Touro College California PA Program has applied for Accreditation- Provisional from the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA). The Touro College California PA Program anticipates matriculating its first class in August 2023, pending achieving Accreditation-Provisional status at the March 2023 ARC-PA meeting. Accreditation-Provisional is an accreditation status granted when the plans and resource allocation, if fully implemented as planned, of a proposed program that has not yet enrolled students appear to demonstrate the program’s ability to meet the ARC-PA Standards or when a program holding accreditation – provisional status appears to demonstrate continued progress in complying with the Standards as it prepares for the graduation of the first class (cohort) of students)
